What is the definition of Secondary Education in relation to child maintenance payments and where do Sixth Form colleges not attached to a school fit in with this. e.g. a college offering a performing arts BTEC First Diploma Level 2 at age 16/17. Thanks Avril
Performing Arts BTEC Level 2 Diploma
Why study this course?
This is an exciting, practical-based course which is studied over one year, and is the equivalent to four GCSEs. It provides an excellent grounding for those hoping to pursue a career in the performing arts or who wish to study more advanced courses such as BTEC Level 3 Performing Arts, Dance or Music. You need to be enthusiastic, and prepared to work hard on practical assessment projects.
What will I learn?
You should hold three GCSEs at grade D or above, preferably including English. There is also an opportunity to retake Maths and English GCSE alongside this course if not already achieved.
Sixth Form Haywards Heath
This does not relate to my question. It is not about child benefit but maintenance charges which the court applied for each of the children 'until they reached the age of 17 or leaves full time secondary education'. This is not linked to HMRC rules etc.
20 that seems a bit harsh... how is secondary education different from further education as the court was very clear at the time that it did not include further education?
The court order and judgement was made for a 'clean break' with an amount of £300 per child individually which specifically stated secondary education and has subsequently dropped by £300 each time a child leaves secondary education. Therefore not entirely in line with CPA.
do you mean further would be any course beyond normal GCSE's?
